DAY 9 & 10 - How Did I Miss a Day?

Ahhhh! I was doing so well with keeping up with the blog challenge and for some reason, it totally slipped my mind last night. I think there is just too many things going on in my brain! haha! For example, last night as I was making t-shirts, I was daydreaming about my wedding at the same time... and i ended up making the t-shirt wrong! Must. Focus.

Day 9 & 10 from 30 Day Blog Challenge: Photo of the item you last purchased & Photo of your favorite place to eat.

Well, the last "item" i purchased was gas for my car so that doesn't really make for an interesting photo.

My fiance & I have a favorite restaurant to go to in our neighbourhood called KARI HOUSE. It's a small family run Malaysian restaurant that is right by the water.

What we love about this place: 

1) Service is great - friendly and fast!
2) The food is deelish and very affordable.
3) Our favorite dish is eggplant and their eggplant is great ... hmmmm... maybe we should incorporate something eggplant-y in our wedding....FOCUS. okay i'm back.
4) Nice view
5) There is a little cute 2 year old boy (since it's a family run restaurant) who sometimes gives us our menus... he wears shoes that light up and squeak and instead of it annoying me, it's actually one of my favorite parts of going to that restaurant. haha!

What's your favorite restaurant like?
P.S - THANK YOU everyone for your congratulations on my engagement post!

LOL you're too funny! Is this the restaurant we were singing about? Or was it another one? And I don't think I've ever had an eggplant meal - maybe you should have it as part of your wedding dinner? ;) By the way, I updated just for you and in honour of you -- kinda hehe. <3 you!

MKL said...

Are you sure it's really Malaysian? Have you bribed them? :P

Lizzy will kill me for this, hehe.

hahaha that reminds me of a little boy that "worked" at a chinese restaurant we went to. he even entertained us with singing until his mom scolded him lol! so cute.

there's no way i can pick a favorite restaurant but right now i'm loving BJ's Restaurant Brewery...laid back with great food. a little pricey, but worth it!

"My fiance and I"...that sounds so cool! Haha, I hope you find many opportunities to say that between now and the big event.

That sounds like a nice place. I thought I recognized the Steveston boathouse in the background (I hope that's what it is!!!).

My favorite place is Karen's Kitchen, but the service there has gone down hill the past few years and it seems like it's closed most of the time. ahahahaha!!! She's making spaghetti for dinner tonight. =)

PS - I do take her out fairly often. It's nice to take her someplace where she can sit back and be waited on.

Congrats on your engagement!! I'm so happy for you! I've been a bit behind in visiting blogs, so I'm sorry I'm so late!

My hubby and I just found a restaurant in town that we absolutely love. It's a locally owned Italian place with the best food I've ever tasted!

Im also doing the thirty day photo challenge but I started right on October 1's so I've yet to get to my fav restaurant but one of the place I do love going to is any "high tea" place, of course some are better than others =)
